From posh Georgian pads to swish riverside new builds, Greenwich has lots of options (Picture: Metro.co.uk/ Alamy)
As home to Maritime Greenwich — one of only four UNESCO World Heritage sites in London, consisting of the old town centre, Royal Park and assortment of historically significant buildings — Greenwich has a head start over most other areas.
But its appeal doesn’t stop there. It hugs the Thames, has a brilliant market, eclectic shops and bars, museums and galleries and tons of open space where kids and dogs can let off steam.
Schools are good, the commute is quick and in 2017 it was crowned the capital’s friendliest place to live — and there’s no reason to suggest that’s changed.
Ever since Inigo Jones was commissioned to design Queen’s House in 1616, Greenwich’s striking and elegant architecture has been a talking point.
‘West Greenwich is the most expensive part, with lovely, mainly Georgian and Victorian, period homes, and Crooms Hill is widely regarded as the best road,’ says Guy Epps of Winkworth estate agents.
‘There’s been a shortage in supply of larger period houses coming to the market, which could be down to people deciding to stay put while there is a degree of uncertainty with the pandemic and the end of furlough.
Elsewhere, areas such as Greenwich Peninsula attract different buyers, mainly younger and wanting to live in contemporary flats rather than houses, and it tends to be cheaper than West Greenwich.’
